  • Causa
    In october 2012, smith & nephew issued a hazard alert informing surgeons and hospitals that the birmingham hip™ modular head had been identified in the australian national joint replacement registry (njrr) and the national joint registry of england and wales (njrew) as having a higher than expected revision rate when compared to all other total conventional hip replacements. in late 2014, smith & nephew became aware of new information relating to the performance of bhmh. also, recent registry and clinical data has showed a decline in the performance of the bhmh., based on the analysis of this information, smith & nephew considers that patients implanted with the bhmh device may be at greater risk of revision surgery.
